Its good Tommy got to see the LADs win the WS title. Maybe after that he said...."I am good"RIP Tommy...he had a good run. Shit...just read yesterday that he just left the hospital. Was kinda expecting it soon. Scully getting up there too. His wife just died as well. I believe she had ALS. Was hoping the Doyers would have a WS and surprise us with Vin calling a game.
We were sitting around the table and one of our guys from San Fran had never been around Tommy. He reaches out to shake Tommys hand and says "I grew up watching the Giants play the dodgers and being from San Francisco it was a pleasure watching you manage." Tommy Looks up at him, looks him dead straight in the eyes and yells " FUCK YOU you god damn giant faggot." the room lost it. It was absolutely hilarious. The Only person not laughing was Tommy. He was dead serious.
Will miss ya Skip. RIP
Were you there when Bobby Bonds hit the grand slam in the bottom of the 9th to beat the LADs? I hope I am remembering that correctlyI am a child of the 1980’s.
My old man worked a Candlestick Park (SF) in the 70’s and 80’s. I have been watching Giants balls games since I was ten. I would go to games for free back then. I remember as a kid watching the Dodgers coming to town in the 80’s and them kicking our ass. As a teen and young adult at Fridays nights partying at the Stick watching Friday nights games against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers coming to town was a big deal. Golden times for sure. Lasorda was a mainstay.
When the Giants played the Dodgers back then Lasorda would come out of the dugout to the the sounds of boos from the home crowd. He would turn and blow a kiss to the home crowd at Candlestick. Classic. Then go about his business. The crowd would boo more. Lol
Good times of a time gone by.............
We will miss the man. He was a gentleman

Bobby....his father One of my favorite ball players of all time
Got yaYou need to talk to my dad. He was born and raised in SF. He worked for the Giants from the late 1950’s until about 1997. He has some tales.
From Seal stadium to Candlestick.
Barry went to Serra High school here in San Mateo. They lived in Belmont. My business partner went to school with Barry.
I am too young to have seen Bobby play in SF.
